"Piano Phase is one of Steve Reich’s many experiments in phasing two identical lines of music, but you’ve probably never heard a version like this effort by Melbourne-based chiptune artist Pselodux. The artist has arranged it for Nintendo Game Boy, running the notes through Nanoloop 2 to create a dreamy 8-bit version of Reich’s classic composition."

This is a really interesting read on the state of record manufacturing. 

TL;DR - There are too few plants, not enough parts, too few specialists, and too much demand. On top of that, the majors who killed the industry in the late 80s / early 90s are trying to buy up large chunks of plant's capacities, making it more difficult for independents to get their presses done. Sounds like a pretty dire and unsustainable mix to me.

Warp is reissuing the entire Broadcast catalog on vinyl!

Broadcast is one of my favorite bands and their stuff's been out of print forever. So excited.

I adore this. Artist Bartholomäus Traubeck, using a computer, Playstation webcam, record player and a slice of wood veneer, figured out a way to translate tree rings into music.

"In order to mine that data, the artist built an elaborate tech setup. The tonearm is equipped with a modified PlayStation eye camera, which streams a close-up image of the record to a computer. "I examine the image for (obviously) year rings, and if one is detected, it is analyzed for its thickness, darkness, and growth factor," the German artist writes. Those parameters determine the groove’s rhythm, tone strength and length, and pitch. After being analyzed and reshaped, the signal is mapped onto a piano scale and output as sound.

Totally beautiful.
